The shop should have tried to match the CPU to a compatible board or attempted to get the same board.

Well they didn't carry any motherboards, that's the problem there

The repair shop could have found the same motherboard if they had google search the motherboard.

 

Did the repair shop give you any answer to why computer is not powering on?

 

Did the repair shop use a different spare power supply unit?

 

Did the repair shop check and make sure connected RAM modules functioning properly?

1. No they didn't cause they didn't have any motherboards in stock

 

2. yes, they said the original motherboard was damaged.

 

3. no they used the current one I have installed in it right now

 

4. like I said they only used the original motherboard. I didn't get the new one till the day after.

As a PC technician i would have first connect a different working power supply unit to check and to make sure issue is not cause by your power supply unit.  You should ask the PC technician to check if power supply unit is working and its possible test your computer with different working power supply unit. If i was you i would take my PC to different PC technician as this so called PC technician have no idea how to diagnose your computer issues.

I would but I don't have the money to cover another diagnostic. and the only other power supply I have is the old one but that one is 300 watts and wouldn't be enough to power everything in my pc.

You have payed for your computer to be repaired but this repair shop took your money without correctly diagnosing your computer problem and give you back the computer without repairing it, i would ask for my money back. 

 

What you need to do is send back the power supply unit for replacement, we need to make sure power supply unit working correctly.

 

Reset the RAM modules by reconnecting the RAM modules.
Blow off any loose dust or debris from the RAM using canned air. Hold the module by its edges.
Clean the contacts using a soft cloth that does not leave fibers behind, such as a lens cleaning cloth slightly moistened with rubbing alcohol.

 

 

Reseat the memory to see if any difference. If no change-try with one stick of memory, then the other to determine which one is bad, or  if both need replacing.

I'll see what happens with the RAM. Though I only have one DDR4 RAM stick in it, the RAM from my old pc's motherboard was incompatible with the new board (the old ones are DDR3 sticks and the new board accepts DDR4 sticks)

You'll probably hear the fans inside your computer turn on, are they, see some or all of the lights on your computer turn on or flash, and then it will all stop?

 

If you won't see anything on the screen do you hear beeps coming from the computer?

I did see the fans go on for a second before turning off, same with the lights on the motherboard. And no I didn't hear any beeps when it was on
